Stay Fashionably Warm this Winter

Don’t let your desire to stay warm this winter hinder your style choices. December is a time to embrace your favorite scarves, strap on those high boots and wrap yourself in as many layers as needed.

Mix up your winter jacket routine with some funky colors, cool patterns, and intriguing silhouettes. Having two jackets in your closet would be ideal. One could be your solid colored neutral jacket like the grey one featured above on the left. This could take you from work to dinner and out with friends on the weekend. It’s neutral so it will go with almost anything! When you’re ready to spice up an outfit, having a second coat that is colorful and patterned will help keep your look fresh and fun!

Next, you should care about what’s underneath the coat. Layers are your best friend in the winter. You want to choose your sweaters wisely. After all, when you step indoors and take off your jacket, your sweater will be the focal point of the look. Choose anything from a sweater with an asymmetrical hemline to one that features a vibrant colorblocked pattern. Choose one with a luxurious fabric. A soft cashmere sweater will keep you warm and comfortable all day long. On those really cold days, wearing a long sweater will have you feeling like you’re still wearing your cozy morning bathrobe.

While your skinny jeans or tights will help keep you warm, an extra layer can never hurt! These black over-the-knee boots will transform any look from casual and basic to stylish and bold, while giving you an extra layer of warmth against your legs.

Now it’s time to put the finishing touch on your look with a warm, chunky scarf. This season we’re seeing everything from solid-colored chunky infinity scarves to multi-colored long scarves. Try choosing one with neutral colors like black or beige so that it won’t clash with the other colors in your ensemble.

It’s that time of year again! What better way to celebrate than with a sparkly cocktail dress and a pair of show-stopping high heels that will surely turn heads all night long. One of this year’s hottest looks is a crop top with jewels and sequins, paired with a fun and flirty tulle or lamé skirt. If you can’t decide which outfit shines brighter, look no further than Refinery29’s article, “The Perfect Outfit For Your NYE Style Personality,” which features seven savvy Instagrammers who show how they bling in the new year.

If there is one night to be dipped from head to toe in glitter or wear a daring slit dress, it’s New Year’s Eve. It’s time to bling in the New Year. It’s time to sparkle and shine.

Tis the Season to Sparkle!

With the holidays just around the corner, the stress of shopping is soon to follow. Don’t panic, the holidays are a time to celebrate. What better way to celebrate than with sparkle?

On a shopping trip to San Francisco, I noticed from shoes, accessories, dresses that everything was dipped in glitter. I decided to slip on a few dresses to see what the rage was all about.

 The outfits are designed by Aqua, a Bloomingdales brand. First, I got decked out in a black sliver romper and then I threw on a white low cut back dress. The white dress, a party stopper, can be rocked out with boots or a bold statement piece. Both outfits were comfortable, neither clung too tight or loose to the body.
